You have in your hands a devastatingly fresh double IPA. While freshness is a key component of many beers - especially big, citrusy, floral IPAs - we've taken it further, a lot further, in this IPA. You see, we specifically brewed it NOT to last. We've not only gone to extensive lengths to ensure that you're getting this beer in your hands within an extraordinarily short window, we made sure that the Enjoy By date isn't randomly etched in tiny text somewhere on the label, to be overlooked by all but the most attentive of retailers and consumers. Instead, we've sent a clear message with the name of the beer itself that there is no better time than right now to enjoy this IPA.

22oz bomber of 5.17.13 (bottle date 4.12.2013) poured into a FFF teku and enjoyed on what seems to be the first true day of spring in Wisconsin!

Aroma: A good bit of honey, caramel, toffee accompanied by a big whiff of cat piss, grapefruit, orange peel and pine. A pretty balanced nose in terms of the components of the beer, though the cat piss is pretty damn strong. A pretty dank DIPA. (4)

Colour: I don't know if its the teku (my first brew in this glass) but this is an absolutely beautiful, clear light copper brew that pours with a thick fluffy white head that gets as high as 3cm before very slowly, slowly receding into a somewhat thick film and a rather thick collar. The lacing is ridiculous with a lot of staying power. Altogether, a very appealing beer that looks fantastic in the glass even when its gone. (5)

Flavour: Nice! Its a very hoppy, dank brew that still busts out its malt card. In the beginning, I get a lot of citrus and tropical fruit- a combination of grapefruit and mango is the best I can put it, followed by honey, toffee and biscuits, which provides a nice sweet deliciousness. Then at the end I get a good bit of pine and accompanying citrus. Delicious- balanced yet supremely hoppy. I guess its very hoppy and malty (though obviously hoppier than it is malty). Even better, its refreshing to drink on this fine spring day! (5)

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied brew that's very well carbonated and coats the palate with all of the flavours and some carbonated fizz to boot. It's resinous with a semi-dry finish yet refreshing. Aftertaste is a continuation of that blend of malt backbone and hops- it's like the malt and hops are battling and it's close, but the malt loses out in the end. That's exactly why this is a double IPA. Pretty nice, quite dank and hoppy yet not too bitter and very easy to drink. (4)

Overall: I'm very impressed with this fresh DIPA offering from Stone. It's appetizing, rich, tasty, sweet and hoppy yet very easy to drink. This is a beer where the malt and hops are both present, making for rich complex flavours yet still crisp and refreshing (as opposed to a RIS or barleywine). I'm impressed and going to have to give Stone the due they deserve here. Tasty as heck. (4)

Great, strong IPA from start to finish....not everything is a perfect score, but this comes pretty darn close. Love the piney taste to this one. Lots left on the palate so i suggest drinking this one last or by itself. I had the 4.20.14 batch and I am reviewing based on that.
